Mary Blake '98

Job Title: 
Manager of Donor and Board Relations

North Carolina Museum of Art
Raleigh, North Carolina

I use the principles of leadership that I learned in the MPA program in my work with top community leaders from around the state who serve on the museum's boards.

When Mary Blake was deciding on a graduate program, she knew one thing for sure: she would never tire of work related to the arts. In the Carolina MPA program, she honed the leadership skills that would allow her to work in an art-filled environment while contributing to her community. In her current role, Blake helps to support a museum that offers free admission to the public and award-winning education programs for students. Blake has also been responsible for Art of the Auction, a dynamic silent and live auction event at the North Carolina Museum of Art that supports Museum education and exhibition programming.
